Rockingham, Council of

Held in 1095, it was a part of the investiture controversy, concerned with whether a king or pope had the right to invest bishops. Lay investiture was seen by the Church as an encroachment. It was centred around Anselm's appointment as archbishop of Canterbury by William II Rufus in 1093. The controversy lasted for some two years. The council decided it could find no fault with Anselm, whose appointment was confirmed by the pope. The matter of lay investiture was resolved with a compromise by Henry I in 1107.
